How to search in tags (or filter tags)

How to find all tags containing a substring, for example "azure" or "office"?
Typing a search string plain in the search box - does not work.
Typing a search string surrounded by [] does not work.
With # - does not work.

Meanwhile try this workaround:

  • Enter the substring — “office”, for example — into main search box, press <Enter> and wait for results.

  • The search results will contain the “REFINE YOUR SEARCH” area. Uncheck the options, excepting “Tags”, and press the “Refine Search” button.

@PavelA as per our search help page, you can use the term in brackets to look for any substring in tags.

Tag Search:
Ex: [azure] [directory]
This search will find any threads with tags that contain either "azure" or "directory".


"azure" and "directory" tag search

If you are getting different results, please include the search term and a screenshot with the incorrect results. For now, I am marking this as Complete.
